Home Inspection Field Training

Home Inspection Field Training (40 Hours)
Washington State requires both Classroom Training and Home Inspection Field Training prior to application for the National Home Inspection Examination (NHIE).

5b[1]In addition to the state-required 120-Classroom Hours, students must complete 40-Field Training Hours under the supervision of an experienced inspector. We accept Field Training Applicants who have completed classroom training with any licensed home inspection school in Washington. Field Training brings students one step closer to becoming a licensed Home Inspector.

From the State Website (WAC 308-408-101):“Field training is in addition to the one hundred twenty hours of classroom instruction and shall be done on actual inspection sites. Field training must include forty hours of instruction with a minimum of five actual complete home inspections done to the standards of practice under the supervision of an experienced inspector. The applicant will be required to complete written reports for each inspection and the supervisor will review the reports and certify that they are in full compliance with the standards of practice. “
